England at the JD Stadium

12 August 2014

Under 18’s game v Netherlands confirmed

England U18s get their season underway on home soil next month when Netherlands are the visitors to the north-west.


Neil Dewsnip’s squad will be in action on Friday 5 September at Bury FC’s JD Stadium, formerly known as Gigg Lane.


It promises to be a mouth-watering clash, with many of the players from last season’s European U17 Championship title winning squad likely to be involved.


And with the Dutch who were defeated in the Final of that competition in Malta last May providing the opposition, there will be an added edge to the game.


With no UEFA or FIFA competitions for the U18 side, the Young Lions will have a number of fixtures during the forthcoming campaign after a successful programme last time around.


After playing games against the likes of Hungary, Belgium and Croatia in games at St. George's Park, the Young Lions finished their season at Rotherham United's New York Stadium, beating Germany by 2-1 in front of a big crowd.


Tickets for the game cost just £3 for adults and £1.50 for U16s or for as little as 50p for group bookings. Charter Standard groups is free admission, and are available now via Bury FC on 0871 221 1885 (option 3) or by e-mailing

Adult £3.00  

Concessions £1.00 (Senior Citizens, Students,

Disabled – Full price with carer free according to age group)
